Looking after your gums is a crucial part of overall oral health care. Lonestar Dental provides the most effective strategies for combating each stage of periodontal conditions. Treatment plans promote cooperation between patients and the Lonestar Dental team to achieve excellence in results.
Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planing are highly effective preventive treatments that help to stop gum disease in its tracks. First, Dr. Akram or an experienced team member will use scaling to remove plague and tartar from the surface of the teeth. The next step involves smoothing and cleaning the roots of the teeth, which eliminates harmful bacterial toxins that are causing infection.
Periodontal maintenance plays an important part in stopping the progression of gum disease for many of our Lonestar Dental patients. We invite patients who suffer from swollen, sore, tender or bleeding gums to attend regular appointments for thorough cleaning to remove the bacteria that cause periodontal conditions such as gum disease.
